per rotoworld, via San Diego Tribune:



The Chargers are expected to use a first-round tender on restricted free agent Malcom Floyd.
Floyd played 2009 under a second-round tender that paid him $1.545 million, so he'll get a sizable raise at the higher level and also likely be safe. Floyd beat out Chris Chambers to be San Diego's starting split end last season.

Usually not very newsworthy in itself, but it's becoming strikingly clear that teams are preparing to lock up their assets in anticipation of a very small pool of UFAs that will be available this offseason. It looks like slim pickins' this year.
